FOX 7 Discussion: DPS waistline lawsuit
AUSTIN, Texas - A lawsuit has been filed in Travis County by the DPS Officer's Association against the Texas Department of Public Safety over its new policy on waistline requirements.
According to their policy, men and women have to meet certain sizes if they want to continue working or face punishment.
According to the lawsuit, if troopers don't meet the waistline standard, they can still be compared to height, weight, and body composition charts. If they fail all three, then they fail the physical fitness test.
DPSOA president Lt. Richard Jankovsky joins Rebecca Thomas to discuss the lawsuit.
